The Madrigal Transformed: ‘Arcadia to the Underworld’

Music by Merulo, Bassano, Rognoni & Monteverdi

The Madrigal Transformed takes us to the refined world of courtly Northern Italy, in the decades around 1600. Tales from Amarilli to Orfeo brought to life by sensuous strings with Monteverdi’s ‘modern’ rule-bending madrigals, and older madrigals transformed with brilliant ornamentation.
